Meatless Fridays: Century Tuna Heavy Hors d'Oeuvres


Heavy hors d'oeuvres (orr-durves) are bite size appetizers that doubles as a heavy snack. This type of food is great for lunch box treats and picnics as they don't spoil easily.

If you're looking for a recipe that is quick, no-cook, and lasts throughout the day, this recipe is for you!

 Century Tuna Heavy Hors d'Oeuvres


1 can of Century Tuna Light Flakes in Veg Oil, 1 can of Century Tuna Light Flakes Hot & Spicy, drained
Clockwise: Sun-dried tomatoes or sun-dried tomato pesto (my favorite), cilantro (wansoy), shallots or red onions, lemon juice, pitted black olives, ground pepper
Your favorite thin cracker

Easy peasy:

  Tip: To lessen dish washing, prepare the toppings inside your lunchbox
Step 1: Dump all the ingredients into the container. Season with pepper. Don't forget to squeeze the lemon and then mix all the ingredients.
Tip: Instead of using fresh tomatoes, especially for packed lunches, use sun-dried ones (personally, I prefer sun-dried tomato pesto) as it will keep the mix dry. Fresh tomatoes tend to make the tuna mixture watery overtime — I got this tip from Juan Sarte. Thanks, Skwez!
Step 2: Garnish with a slice of lemon
If you're an avid reader of my blog, you would remember my feature on Lex N' Go  collapsible silicone lunchbox.
This is a yummy and no-cook dish that you can serve anytime of the day. You can prepare this ahead of time too. Best served chilled.

I packed this earlier for Aryanna and her friend Danielle and they devoured it in the car even before I dropped them off the mall. They said it was very good and filling. Happiness.

You can add this recipe to your back to school menu and as a packed lunch healthy treat!

Shoppingero/shoppingera, eat healthy!

I love tuna + olives! Will have to include the other ingredients on my to buy list for the next grocery trip. I prefer the texture on Century Tuna Chunks and I they are more meaty. I'm not sure though if they have Lite for tuna chunks.

Love the lunch box by the way. It's like made for this particular recipe! :D

I also make a similar mix with Century Tuna Hot & Spicy, but top it on Skyflakes or Fita! :)))

Great idea with adding the tomato pesto. Yes, fresh tomatoes will make the mix watery.
